What do you think of Oracle Audit Vault?

What is our primary use case?

It is used as a central audit repository and reporting for all my databases, which has reduced the stress of collecting database event logs in silos from each database.

How has it helped my organization?

Out-of-the-box policies ensure our compliance with standards like SOX, ISO 27001, and so on.

What is most valuable?

The critical event alerts and reporting features have greatly reduced loss of man hours that would have been spent on going through the whole audit event logs.

What needs improvement?

An easy, friendly user interface would be nice to have, since this would enable administrators to identify important events with a prompt response.

For how long have I used the solution?

Three to five years.
